Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Thank God!

A young man borrows a horse from a missionary. There are a couple of special things about this horse, however. The missionary warns him that to make the horse go, the young man would have to say "Thank God", and "Amen" to make him stop.

So he gets on the horse and says, "Thank God," and at once the horse starts walking. The young man says, "Thank God" again, and the horse begins trotting. Again he says, "Thank God, thank God," and now the horse just takes off. Only now there is a cliff coming up rather quickly, so he hauls back on the reins and says, "Whoa!"

Of course it does not work. He tries everything he can think of, and only at the very last instant does he remember to say, "Amen!"

At once the horse stops, a bare four inches from the cliff. The young man leans back in the saddle and says, "Thank God."
